What started as a unique Japanese crochet art only a few decades ago, amigurumi is now spreading like wild fire across the globe. As a Japanese cultural center in New York City, an extremely vibrant and diverse location, RESOBOX is looking to uncover and explore the core of what makes amigurumi so adored by everyone.
In order to examine how the amigurumi culture is developing in each area of the world, we’ve asked artists from 46 countries to submit at least one amigurumi representing something special about their country! Our goal is to show each country’s unique features while connecting them through the common medium of amigurumi! Artists have submitted amigurumi made with their country’s colors, a special type of yarn or other materials (beads, embellishments, fabric, etc.) well known in your country, amigurumi wearing cultural clothes, and many other original ideas!
Learn about different cultures around the world through crocheting and amigurumi at our second World Amigurumi Exhibition!
